An equalizer removes the headphone's usage for me.still use it for the comfort, soft doesnt squeeze you either

Pros: the sound is good for 80 bucks maximum.soft cushions will never hurt your ears ever.

Cons: headphones in the 60-100 price range sound better even when bassboosts are applied via an equalizer.

After being a basshead for like 4 years it dawned on me i didnt need to buy headphones like this because 2 years ago i discovered equalizers that actually does that.I was curious as to why the flat response fellows wanted flat response headphones, when i found that thing i understood.also the bass extensions comes directly from the cussions, i took those off(not recommended) and they sounded like a slightly watered down grado 80 dollar set.


these headphones are far from the worst option for mixing, but if not EQ'd they will be tricky to mix on :/


three years ago i would look at this review and say wtf, but i get it now.dudes you better off with dt660s.
